...Shinnosuke Abe was the starting first baseman during Tuesday's game.  Abe has also been using the "Twist" method of hitting.  The "Twist" method is basically when you consciously keep yourself from flying open (by "twisting" your waist in reverse as you swing and keeping your weight back) so that you can make solid contact on outside pitches.
